Core French Ascertainment Study.
A survey was conducted of members of the Ontario Modern Language Teachers' Association, resulting in an evaluation of the core French-as-a-second-language program for grades 7 to 13. Results indicate that the use of video is not a significant part of regular classroom activities, a fact which is viewed as a problem to be overcome. The teachers are most interested in video programming presented in French and English or in French alone. The topics for which they would like video materials cover, in general, the teaching of folklore or famous people in the lower grades and cultural topics in the middle and upper grades. This preference exists in spite of the fact that the greatest teaching difficulty in the lower and middle grades is felt to be verbs, and in the upper grades, regional accents. (Author/JB)
